Kumartuli visit, Mahalayar Agomoni, Dhaaker Taal, Dhunuchi Dance, Shondhay Arati, Astami Pushpanjali, Sindur Khela and then Devi’s Biday bela . All this may sound just a ritual but there is a gamut of human emotions which flows immensely on those 5 days of celebration. Where the heart rejoices to every tune of Dhaak, as the Devi is greeted with affection in the form of love by her devotees. Durga Puja is indeed a celebration of life. – From the heart of a Bengali.
